On Wednesday, October 14, Cameron Kelly, General Counsel for the U.S. Department of Commerce, is hosting Vice Minister Zhang Qiong from China’s State Council Legislative Affairs Office and other Chinese Government officials in Chicago for the 2009 U.S./China Legal Exchange. The Legal Exchange presents a valuable opportunity for business people, lawyers, law professors, and law students, to interact directly with these high-level officials on two dynamic areas of China’s evolving commercial law regime: China’s patent and telecommunications regimes. This year’s program is particularly timely, as China is in the process of developing new laws and rules for these regimes as it looks to enhance its domestic market.
The program provides a valuable opportunity to support the broad interest of the U.S. and Chinese Governments to enhance government transparency and promote stronger bilateral dialogue to the benefit both countries. Mr. Kelly will be joined by U.S. experts in the form of government and non-government speakers, including Chicago’s own Sharon Barner, the recently appointed Deputy Director of the Patent and Trademark Office, and the Associate Administrator for Policy Analysis and Development for the National Telecommunications and Information Administration, Danny Weitzner.
